Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing arm, Vertus, has announced it is launching its first pet-friendly building, 8 Water Street. The development is the second of three brand-new build-to-rent (BtR) schemes to launch in Canary Wharf. As well as being pet-friendly, residents can expect benefits such as tenancy terms that suit their needs, with flexible deposit options and an exceptional range of amenities, including family friendly and pet friendly spaces, as well as exclusive events. Apartments at 8 Water Street are available from £1,950pcm.
Alastair Mullens, Head of Vertus comments, “We’re really pleased to announce the launch of our second BTR building in Canary Wharf’s new district Wood Wharf, a vibrant and restful waterside community.
“As the first pet-friendly BTR building in Canary Wharf, we expect to see a strong demand for these apartments as there are very few properties of this quality available on the rental market, which also have the option of keeping pets.
“8 Water Street is much more than just a pet-friendly BTR building. Much like 10 George Street, 8 Water Street will provide a fantastic experience, exceptional amenities, five-star apartments and a high-quality lifestyle for those who chose to rent with Vertus.”
8 Water Street is a collection of 174 units ranging from studio to three-bedroom apartments. The building itself, designed by award-winning architecture firm Stanton-Williams has a low-rise character which intimately connects residents to the water and green spaces below.
Complementing the exterior aesthetic, the interiors have been designed to the highest standard by Goddard Littlefair who have created luxurious, yet functional spaces for residents. Each apartment showcases the best in open-plan living and accentuates the natural light throughout, with floor to ceiling windows and either a terrace or balcony, the perfect place for watching the world go by with a coffee. Apartments also feature wooden floors, heated floors in the bathroom and high-specification appliances throughout. Furnished by Accouter Group of Companies, residents have the option of painting the walls of their apartment, making the place really feel like home.
In addition, 8 Water Street comprises 2,917 sq. ft. of Club Vertus amenity space, which includes a private rentable dining room, residents lounge and a snug / TV room, perfect for a family film afternoon on a Sunday. 8 Water Street also boasts an expansive roof terrace, the largest outdoor space in the Vertus portfolio and shared private gardens, both great spaces for giving pets their daily exercise. There will also been concierge on hand 24/7 to help with residents’ every need.
8 Water Street, along with Vertus’ first building, 10 George Street, set a precedent for BTR developments across the capital; by creating a lifestyle that’s hard to beat in Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf.
The new district, Wood Wharf, will house up to 3,600 new homes, 350,000sq. ft of retail space and nine acres of public spaces, adding to the already extensive offering of Canary Wharf. Already well-connected by the Jubilee and DLR lines, the arrival of the Elizabeth line will make Canary Wharf even more accessible.
Show apartments at 8 Water Street will be available for potential residents to view from £1,950. For more information about Vertus or 8 Water Street visit www.thisisvertus.com or contact email@example.com
